The Direct also gave us a glimpse of the layout of the game's map as well. A more or less symmetrical design, the map features two main lanes, with a connecting middle section and area vaguely reminiscent of the "jungle" in other MOBA titles.Learn More ON Map & Gimmicks From Here
Grab Objectives To Get Points
It seems the main way of getting points in Unite will be to stand on an objective unopposed long enough for the bar to fill up. Doing so seems to destroy the objective - each time has 5 objectives on their side in total!
Save Up Points And Spend Them On Objectives
From the gameplay footage revealed so far, we can see that Pokemon gain points which are displayed next to their name, as well as on the Pokeball in the bottom of their UI. These are spent and cashed into real points when you capture an objective. It's unclear if they disappear when your character is defeated.
Players will be able to battle and capture wild Pokemon around the stage. Doing so will grant you experience points and allow you to summon that Pokemon into battle!
Use Pokemon In Battle?
Although not many details were given, we can glean from the UI that Pokemon you captured will be stored in a Pokeball on your screen. This Pokemon can likely be thrown out to aid you in battle. It is not known if it will have a cooldown.
4 Battle Moves
Keeping to main line Pokemon games, it seems players will be able to have a maximum of 4 moves available to them. Their final move, the "Unite" move, is likely similar to an ultimate in other games, as it can't be used as freely.Learn More On Unite Moves From Here
Close Range Or Long Range Specialization?
Character customizability and specs are likely to come in the form of move specialization. Players will be able to select more melee-centered moves, or ranged moves if they prefer to fight at a distance.
